Happy 2017! When on earth did the time go? Somehow, the last few months got away from me but in the spirit of new year’s resolutions, I’d like to get back on track. I miss writing… a lot. I miss the interaction although many readers have been great about keeping in touch via Facebook or Instagram. And I miss documenting the adventures of this little lifestyle of ours.
I’m ready to get back in the swing of things though – my husband is back from Iraq (three MAJOR cheers for that) after completing his successful unaccompanied tour, I’m hitting my stride at work with my own transition (three MORE cheers for that), our rental house in DC finally looks and feels like a home (and um, I finally unpacked those boxes…most of them anyway). We have a new post to look forward to (more on that later!) and the kids are getting used to their American “home” life (more cheers). In short, lots to be grateful for and lots to appreciate, especially during a time when things feel a bit uncertain in the world.
Around this time of year, you read a lot about resolutions and habits and what it takes to make them stick – one step at a time though. In my dreams I have big plans for this little plan, but in reality, it might take the form of baby steps. So let’s start there – here is to 2017 and to January and to lots of good things ahead!
